She has been in private practice in the greater Philadelphia area since 1985. Her work over the years has involved all age groups and clinical presentations. She is a treatment coordinator at Sadar Psychological and is a nationally recognized speaker providing education and offering training to other professionals in neurofeedback, biofeedback, and hypnosis. In 2018 she was invited to be part of BrainARC Switzerland and began developing evaluations protocols based on the research of HBImed, Switzerland. Presently, her clinical focus is on patients with complex/comorbid presentations and consulting with other psychologists, medical practitioners and other clinicians regarding EEG, neurofeedback and practice development. She is the executive director of the Northeast Region Biofeedback Society and a board member at large of The Association of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback.

Mitchell Sadar

Mitchell Sadar, Ph.D., BCN,BCB-HRV is a licensed psychologist who was the director of a Pennsylvania Correctional Institution’s inpatient program for over 15 years. In 1999 he was trained in neurofeedback and tried to bring this modality to the correctional population, but his attempts were not accepted by the Department of Corrections. He then resolved to dedicate his work to biofeedback and developed his private practice. Since 2015 he has been the president of the Northeast Region Biofeedback Society. His background in neuropsychology readily lent itself to learning how the EEG can facilitate neurofeedback training. In 2018, along with his practitioner wife, Angelika Sadar, he was invited to be part of BrainARC Switzerland and began developing evaluations and protocols based on the research of HBImed, Switzerland. Since that time, he has focused on developing assessments that include an analysis of EEG and ERPs to help to guide biofeedback/neurofeedback protocols but also include recommendations regarding psychotherapy and lifestyle changes.
